In iOS 6, a large number of sharing options are available, particularly within the Photos app. If you don’t have a Facebook or Twitter account, for example, this can be something of an annoyance. Fortunately, one new jailbreak tweak makes it possible to remove select icons from the sharing menu in iOS 6, allowing users to de-clutter their sharing menu through removing options which aren’t applicable.
As you’ll likely know, by default the following sharing options are available from within iOS 6′s sharing menu: Mail, Message, Photo Stream, Twitter, Facebook, Assign to Contact, Print, Copy, and Use as Wallpaper.
However, what if you don’t have a Twitter or Facebook account? Or what if, like me, you’ve never assigned a contact’s profile picture or added a new wallpaper from within the Photos app? A new jailbreak tweak, called CleanActivity, can remove one (or many) of the sharing options displayed in the sharing menu in iOS 6, allowing users to free up space and therefore to make the sharing menu look a little nicer.
All you’ve got to do is install the free jailbreak tweak, and from within a new pane added to the Settings app the appropriate changes can be made. Disabling a sharing option is as simple as switching a toggle over to “on,” and as noted above, numerous switches can be enabled and therefore numerous sharing options can be disabled.
For more information on CleanActivity, check out our hands-on walkthrough below. (While you’re at it, make sure you check out Dom’s iPad mini and iPad 4 vids, too.) The jailbreak tweak, as mentioned, can be downloaded for free in the Cydia Store. Currently, CleanActivity is available via the BigBoss repository.
